Chris was invited to church in 2007 by some friends. He had always believed in God, but he didn’t ever think he was good enough for church. He had no idea how God was going to transform his life. God now uses Chris as a drug and alcohol counselor, and he started Renew counseling ministry at the Encounter in the fall 2017. Chris and his wife, MaryAnn, have five children: Brennan, Jacob, Taylor, Addisyn, and Kaylee. Chris oversees Renew Ministries.
